Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

fuse #10 keeps blowing out-engine turns over-car won't start

For the past 4 years I have been carrying a bag of #10 (Ignition) fuses, a screwdriver and flashlight in my '97 Toyota RAV4 because the #10 fuses keep blowing out, the engine turns over and the car will not go into gear. I have had it towed, and they kept it overnight twice, and this last time Feb 2015, they kept it 3 days and said they could not find the problem. They told me next time it happens to have it towed without replacing the fuse. I am female (old) and it feels dangerous changing fuses on dark streets or parking lots. I would like to hear if anyone else has had this fuse problem.
